Zombie Books!
« on: July 20, 2005, 02:09:28 pm »
Dang it, I'm in a zombie mood... I rented dawn of the dead, went to land of the dead, and have been playing urbandead! :p Can anyone suggest any good zombie-based books?
I would like to know if any of you have read any and think they are good! ^_^

Terry Pratchett's Johnny and the Dead is very amusing if meant for a somewhat young audience.  -leeman

zombie books

for the quick fix TRAILER PARK OF THE DAMNED
funny MATURE ;D fiction
"6.4 Um's per minute" or "The Speed of Wright

An adventurer in the land of who gives a ****

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

forgot about this....

 I was looking at the urban dead forums and came upon this thread

you could pick up a copy of "I Am Legend"

it was the base upon which the clasic films Omega Man and The Last Man On Earth, were made.

I tried to purchase a copy of "I Am Legend"  at a Books A Million store a few years ago and the idiot a their customer service desk was no help at all, and eventually i forgot about it.

A while before that I had seen The Last Man On Earth starring Vincent Price and it had really had an effect on me, along with a late night viewing of Romeros classic Night of the Living Dead, i found a greater appreciation of the horror genera.

Triple the recommendation - LOVED that book!

Also own "I Am Legend"  - it is very good.  I would also recommend another book I read recently called "Cell" by Stephen King.  It was somewhat "zombie like."   

Not sure if the site still exists but "Homepage of the Dead" has a H-U-G-E fiction section that has hundreds and hundreds of zombie stories (some very long, others short).  Some of the stories are very creepy and very well done.  Do a Goggle search to get the url.
